Project Tango is an ambitious initiative of both the firms to make use of 3D motion tracking and depth sensing on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets to determine their position relative to the world without making use of GPS and other external signals.
Project Tango prototype tablets that were showcased in 2015 featured a 4-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 180-degree fish eye lens for motion tracking. Its front-facing snapper will support 120-degree field of vision. The device would also include a depth camera that will support shooting images at 180 x 320 pixels, Phone Arena reported.
These cameras are required for various Project Tango devices to map the space around the user on real time basis. The other features it will support include indoor navigation, augmented reality, measuring physical spaces and more. During the CES 2016, Lenovo and Google had confirmed that the Project Tango device will be carrying a price tag lower than $500.
Lenovo is also expected to unleash the Moto Z Style and Moto Z Play smartphones on June 9. Both the smartphones are expected to support snap-on modules. Blass had recently revealed a leaked image that showed snap-on modules called MotoMods such as pico projector, JBL speakers and Hasselblad camera.
The Moto Z Style will be a flagship phone with specs like 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. The Moto Z Play is expected to launch as an upper midrange phone with specs such as 5.5-inch full HD display and Snapdragon 625 chipset.
